Colour Throwdown Meets Just Add Ink

I loved this week's Colour Throwdown as well as the Just Add Ink sketch so a double challenge card was in order.  

I didn't have pumpkin pie so I had to go with Only Orange and it was a stinker of a colour to photograph - ugh!!   Did the best I could to tone it down in Photoshop, but it still looks brighter and darker than it actually is on the card - trust me on that LOL!

Being that I am still on a Vintage Vogue kick (sorry....just love this set!!), I decided to ink up two of the stamps in the set which haven't seen any love yet.  The vine image is stamped in VersaMark on the right hand side of the blue panel (bit hard to see, but it shows up much more in real life and balances off the ribbon wonderfully) and the friend stamp fit perfectly in the half circle.

Since I had so much fun making the ruffled ribbon on my last card, I decided to do it again, only this time with a wider ribbon.  Love how much dimension it gives a card!  May have to get some more double sided tape at this rate LOL! 

Kids are counting how many days of school are left and I am still in deep denial about it LOL!  Weather has been yucky for weeks now, however, when it is rainy out it does make it a lot easier to stay inside and stamp!

Have a fabulous day, and consider this card made for all of you, my cyber friends, as a thank you for your visits and comments on my blog (((hugs))).
